The Xbox Series X and the Series S are currently available to pre-order. Demand is very high as we look to Microsoft’s newest generation of consoles – and all the associated exclusives and peripherals.

In the wake of all this, supplies are pretty low, though it’s possible that the PS5’s release in the previous week might’ve reduced the demand a little (though likely not by much). Well done if you managed to reserve your own Xbox already, but for those of you who haven’t, we’re here to provide all the info you need. Below, we’ve listed all the online retailers who are going to be selling the console, and we’ll be updating the page as we get more details on availability. Alternatively, check out Jelly Deals on Twitter for up-to-the-minute Xbox Series X/S pre-order news.

Xbox Series X/S Consoles

Pre-ordering an Xbox Series X at the moment will cost $499.99/£449.99/€499.99. For this, you’ll get the console itself, the controller and an Ultra High Speed HDMI cable. You can also get the smaller Xbox Series S for $299.99/£249.99/€299.99. There are no bundles available at time of writing.

That being said, one big initiative that’s available for new consoles is Xbox All Access. This monthly payment plan lasts for two years but gets you either console and 24 months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. This plan costs $34.99/£28.99/€34.99 for the Series X, and $24.99/£20.99/€24.99 for the Series S. Taken as a whole, this plan generally lowers the price involved by a small amount, assuming you were going to get Xbox Ultimate Game Pass either way. This plan is available at fewer retailers than the regular consoles, but Microsoft has said they will be bringing it to more countries and retailers in 2021.

Xbox Series X/S Accessories

Microsoft has announced that all the official Xbox One accessories will be compatible with the Series X and S, meaning that any controllers and hardware you have leftover should work on the new generation of consoles. There aren’t many new accessories announced at the moment, possibly for that reason, but we’ve listed those that are worth keeping an eye on below, and we’ll be sure to update as we find out more. The Xbox Storage Expansion Card is likely the most important if you’re looking to add more room for Xbox Series X/S game installs on your console.

Amazon UK:

  • Xbox Series X/S Wireless Controller
  • Rechargeable Battery + USB-C Cable

Xbox Series X/S Games

There’s no shortage of launch title games when the Series X and S hit shelves as well as a whole glut of games supposedly coming soon after – even if many are available on last-gen, too!

Halo Infinite looks to be a big seller on the Xbox (though it’s been delayed to 2021), and there’s a new Fable game in the works. Plus, some existing games will be making the jump to a new generation, like Marvel’s Avengers, Gears 5 and Devil May Cry 5. There’s also going to be thousands of backwards compatible games, and Xbox has announced the existence of their “Smart Delivery” system, in which certain games will transfer across from the Xbox One (though not all games will do this).

We’ve listed all the Xbox Series X/S games you can currently preorder below. See anything that makes you particularly excited?

Amazon US:

  • Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla
  • Dirt 5
  • FIFA 21
  • Fortnite
  • Gears 5
  • Marvel’s Avengers
  • NBA 2K21
  • Watch Dogs Legion
  • Yakuza: Like A Dragon
